"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."


- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry


I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The Silver Threads of Fate




I've had just enough time to...   feel the trembling of the string of fate


Taken in an industrial loom in Yangon, Myanmar


The silver threads of fate spins
In the loom of the blind sisters
Trembling under their fingers
And another hero falls
Blind eyes shed no tears
See no sorrow
Feel no fear





The quivering threads sing
Exciting the tender hearts
With its seductive rhyme
And another maiden falls
Blind eyes reveal no love
See no blushes
Feel no pain

The blind sisters chuckle
Picks another thread, breaks it
With a snap and attaches it again
But no silver thread
Can mend the
Severed string
Of a heart shattered

________


Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today;
Life is fading fast away;
But, my darling, you will be, will be,
Always young and fair to me,
Yes, my darling, you will be,
Always young and fair to me.

  1. Your verse reminds me of the song that goes:

    "Silver thread and golden needles
    Cannot mend this heart of mine
    And I dare not drown my sorrows
    In the warm glow of your wine..."

    In a yarn spinning factory in the outskirt of Yangon, Myanmar; I walked among silver threads twirling and whirling everywhere endlessly. Nobody speaks in the dim environment and they move as shadows among the monster looms spitting out threads after threads. The machines chatter loudly in their mechanical language as they work furiously. And the shadows seem to understand the commands and hurry about to reattach a broken string or transfer a full cone. A hundred noisy machines, a thousand silent workers. Have the blind sisters gone high tech?

    Freezing The Fast Spinning And Moving Moment. Very Well Presented. Spinning , Dyeing , Weaving and the entire process is in the open. This is a common sight in country side in most of Asian Countries.
    Very True Feeling expressed in Words. The Perfect Quote.
    Well done My friend.

    At one end of the factory, against the lighted window; I saw her shadow and my heart skipped a few beats. No, it was not her. The blind sisters played me a trick. But the image was so familiar that my heart still trembles through the vibration of the string the blind sister picked. I froze and took the scene in along with all the pain. And when her head turned and faced my way, my knees went weak. In a yarn factory on the outskirt of Myanmar, I saw her again. It was not her but I saw her again.

    An eloquent poignant prose of loss & yearning, thou. We too see her silhouette against the lighted window & wait with bated breath for her to turn her head. Beautiful instrumental & lyrics from the Fureys. Thank you.
